petrolpumpNetwerk24 reports that the petroleum sector strike is still ongoing and, while the SA Petroleum Industry Association (Sapia) says there is sufficient supply to meet demand, some filling stations are experiencing delays with deliveries.  

This especially true for smaller stations.  Sapia said on Thursday that it was working with the police, where necessary, and depots have put in place contingency plans.  Members of the Chemical Energy Paper Printing Wood and Allied Workers Union (Ceppwawu) went on a wage strike on 28 July 2016.  Negotiations are still at a dead end and Sapia indicated that it was not aware of any further talks.  The CCMA confirmed on Wednesday that Ceppwawu and the National Petroleum Employers’ Association (NPEA) had accepted its offer to conciliate, which is expected to commence on Friday.  (Loosely translated from Afrikaans)
